Figure Drawing for Illustration

$92

with Vance Bessey

Calendar Sep 11, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 8 weeks

If your wish is to expand your drawing skills or to develop your technique as a professional Graphic Novel illustrator, Children’s Book Illustrator, Video Game Designer or CGI Animator, you need to be able to draw the human figure quickly and convincingly. It is the core of those professions. Drawing the human figure is at once the most difficult and the most satisfying aspect of art. This class will cut out the middleman (or woman) by teaching you to draw people without using models. Using the arts of proportion, gesture and form - with a little anatomy thrown in - you will create your own characters for use in media, narrative arts and illustration. You will be surprised what you can accomplish with these techniques. This class requires drawing pad, pencils, and colored pencils.
